Special thanks to the children who braved wind & rain to help Lynne dig channels, earth up the mounds & protect the beds from potato loving squirrels and baby foxes. In spite of terrible weather, we planted four beds – the ones that generally get dug up by foxes and so are not really any use for other crops.
Maria and Caroline, our gardeners, will welcome your help with April tasks, dead heading, watering the pots, weeding and mulching. And we need your help to prepare the way for our new habitat for insects and birds, our new bug hotel, wildlife log pile and hedgerow.
To make space for this new habitat we first need your help to dismantle the compost bays, and clear and bag rubbish. We need lots of help on our volunteering days this month, every Tuesday and on Saturday 16 April, any time between 10am and 4pm. Join us for an hour or two, or longer. Coffee and biscuits will be available.
Come along and join Caroline, our gardener, on Saturday 19 March, any time between 10am-4pm. Lots of volunteer tasks are available. We will be tidying the woodland, reducing unwanted saplings and cutting some of the ivy growing on trees.
Coffee and cake will be provided.
Remember to wear suitable footwear and if possible bring your own gloves.
Daffodils are everywhere! You can also find Anemone blanda (blue), Corsican hellebores, Camellia, and Leucojum (snowflakes). And you might even see a great spotted woodpecker!
Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who have been helping our gardeners Maria and Caroline. Volunteers have now tidied up after the stormy weather and are working in the woodland, reducing unwanted saplings and cutting some of the ivy growing on trees. We have planted a plum tree generously donated by a neighbour and we sowed wild flowers in the meadow.
More volunteers are welcome – every Tuesday and the third Saturday in the month. Coffee and cake provided!
We made bird feeders with apples and sunflower seeds
Due to the weather conditions, we have cancelled our Volunteer Day on Saturday 19th February.
Instead, we invite you to come along for a Volunteer Day on Saturday 26th February to help Caroline, our gardener, with spring tasks, including sowing seeds. Coffee and cake provided! Join us any time between 10am – 4pm.
Could you help with volunteer tasks, including sowing seeds and planting summer bulbs? Come along and join our gardeners Maria and Caroline on Tuesday 15th and Saturday 19th February, any time between 10am-4pm.
We will provide materials and instructions for your family to make bird feeders.
Coffee and cake/biscuits will be provided.
